Route Climbed: Normal from Monte Rosa Htt. Date Climbed: 28 July 2005  Sucess!

Solo trough Grenzgletscher to the summit by normal route with back pack full of food and bivack equipement. I met 2 Italians on the top, they did it from Dufour Sp. Cold wind at that day, strong sun. The rocky part is worth your every step, I found it very atractive.

Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: 4th August 2003

Nice hight walking. Very nice day: sunny but very worm.

We started at 4:30 in the morning from Città di Mantova hutte and we arrived at the top of Zumsteinspitze in 3:10. Than we traversed to Signalkuppe, Parrotspitze, Ludvishohe, Corno Nero and back again at the hutte before 12:00.

A long walking for an unforgettable day.

I suggest to try: long but easy. And very spectacular

A long day starting in the Marguerita hut at 8 AM and ending in Zermatt at 7:30 PM. Took us 25 minutes from Marguerita hut to the summit of Zumsteinspitze and then an addtional 3 hours to reach the top of Dufourspitze. A very beautiful ridge traverse. From there, 4 hours down to the Monte Rosa hut and an additional 2.5 hour and two glaciers to the Rotenboden train station. From there a half and hour ride to Zermatt.
